Norman Woodcock Race, Kilburn Kanter Fell Race, 5th November 2016

The Norman Woodcock Memorial 5 Mile Race is held annually in Newcastle.  The course is flat and fast, apart from one section of incline in each of the three laps and some very strong wind on the day to slow people down.


Hartlepool Burn Road Harrier Bryan Astill had a fantastic run in the bad conditions, crossing the finish line in 30:20 and claiming the male first Vet50 prize.   Richard Hambly was the next Harrier to finish in a time of 32:47, knocking over two minutes off his previous best over five miles.


Simon Lawlor has had a great season and adds another personal best run to his long list.  His best time over five miles was 39:08 run in 2014 at the Marina 5 Mile Road Race in Hartlepool.  At Newcastle he ran 35:40, three and a half minutes faster.

Jo Beddow and Carl Marchant supported one another around the course, digging in to cross the finish line together, Jo secured a personal best of 37:06 PB and a prize for 3rd Vet 40. 


The best times kept coming, with Claire Earle completing the Burn Road team with a 40:54 run, almost three minutes faster than her previous best. 


Kilburn Kanter Fell Race


The same day, Saturday 5th November, saw the Kilburn Kanter Fell Race take place.  Andrew Minister was the lone Harrier racing on this occasion in a race hosted by the North Yorkshire Long Distance Walkers Association.   Andrew is no stranger to this race and took his place on the start line with 141 other fell runners.  He safely negotiated his way around the course and the seven mandatory checkpoints to win the race in 4 hours and 1 minute.  An exceptional performance from Andrew who is very much at home racing on the fells.
